Cool, that's the show all right. The tape I mentioned had
some other wisecracks that were only semi-audible, the
words Canada and Toronto being the only really comprehensible words.
Thanks very much. Pretty funny stuff, indeed. Loved that old-timey stage banter. Bob's atrocious joke about the
hunter with the deer on his shoulder is only slightly more
tolerable than his legendary yellow-dog-alligator story.

If you listen to the start of DP 25, you can hear Jerry in
the background saying," I've had enough of your shit, asshole, I'm not going to play anymore..." But he did and
the boys turned out a truly kick-ass, if somewhat inebriated show.

Oddly, the Mets were playing the Pirates in Pittsburgh on 8-6-74.
